I have officially taken a single step into the spectrum they call, “The Real World.” I have some work to do, but at this point in my life, I am only a few moments from finding the purpose in my life, or at least I hope! Still, I have accomplished more than I once thought I could. Yet again, it started with some goal setting.
When I graduated from college in New York, I told myself I would do five things.
1) Take more chances.
2) Stop changing for others.
3) Find a career that I love and conquer everything it puts in front of me.
4) Keep in touch with my friends from college. Those friends are family.
5) And of course, make my parents proud.
I haven’t exactly done any of these things. That is because I am just now taking the leap of faith that is the rest of my life. I’m starting to take chances, being purely myself, keeping in touch with my friends, while searching for a career I love, so I can make my parents proud.
I am officially living the rest of my life.
Some may agree with the way I live. Some may not.
Either way, This is ME. Whatever that may mean to you.
